Re: Scrivener for Academic writers

Just a thought: think of Scrivener as a drafting tool. Draft everything in Scrivener, and then output to the Word Processor of choice, scan the Sente references, and then work from there. I suspect that's how most people with requirements similar to yours use it. Scrivener is for working towards tha...

Re: Bookends Setup

Presumably you are using Scrivener as a drafting tool, so you should choose Scrivener. This means that you will be able to automatically switch back and forth between Bookends and Scrivener, pasting in temporary citations. Then, when you compile to Nisus (later on) you will be able to tidy up the do...

Re: Suggestion for the Document References pane

True enough, but the space is a little small (at least on my 13 inch screen). I was looking at the icon to the left, which looks like to could be coloured or something...
Thanks for the suggestion,

Suggestion for the Document References pane

I've been using the Document References pane recently to link to external documents (often in Devonthink, but sometimes on Amazon and other web sources). Would it be possible to add the possibility of adding either a checkbox, or some form of colour-labelling that would allow the user to indicate wh...

Re: guide books to Scrivener

I too use Devonthink alongside Scrivener. There's a part of the process that I'd like to refine, that is how to take maximum benefit from Devonthink's See Also functionality. What I currently do is paste bits of text that I am developing in Scrivener into a blank document in Devonthink, save it, and...

Re: Devonthink links

Nemesis, you're quite right.
I don't know why, but I didn't realize that you have to make a note and insert the link in the note.
I was just pasting onto the board, without first making a note.
Sometimes the human brain is addled.

Re: Devonthink links

No, you're absolutely correct: it works.
I am entirely satisfied with this system, but I wonder would a cutting and pasting approach not be more intuitive.
As for me, I don't need it, because now I know how its done. But for others who don't?

Thanks very kindly,

Devonthink links

Testing Scapple a bit more, and liking it very much. I notice that if a note is a URL like http://www.google.com, it can be converted into a clickable link. Would it be very difficult to make the same true for Devonthink item links, like x-devonthink-item://34DA9744-7A5D-439F-81AA-BEBDFEA98AFAR ? Th...

Re: At what stage do others transfer their manuscript to word?

"Levigated" is from the Italian "Levigati".

In English it seems to be used of powders and so on, whereas in Italian it can be used of writing style.
In this context it means "polished."

... in case anyone was wondering...

Re: Scapple Beta (Download Here)

I've enjoyed my little test. Good product. I foresee greatness in the near future. This is neither a bug report, nor a feature request, but a question. Is there a simple way to describe the way in which notes should be ordered to facilitate ordered opml export. It seems that it respects Top to Botto...

Re: Folder notes

Yes, I think the method that AmberV has suggested will do the job nicely enough. I can split the screen and keep those notes available, as needed.
Simple, really.
Thanks,

Folder notes

I don't know if its already possible to do this, so I've placed this post in technical support. Perhaps it should be a feature request. Sometimes, a series of documents will need to refer to the same notes, references and so on. Currently I can choose between Project Notes and Document Notes. Would ...
